How to Jailbreak iOS 4.3.2 Untethered on iPhone 4 Using PwnageTool
As you might have read our previous post, the new Apple iOS version 4.3.2 was released just moments ago (when the post was submitted) and now the jailbreak is already out! Pretty fast on the jailbreaking communities side, I must say!
However, this is no surprise or shocking but the jailbreaking is tethered meaning you’ll have to reboot it again every time using the PC to start it up. No other way for now (un-tethered jailbreak has now been considered a possibility).
You Need This:
Note: Unlocking is NOT POSSIBLE! Those who rely on a carrier unlock must STAY AWAY from this jailbreak! (for now at least)
Well, first of all download the PwnageTool 4.3 and the PwnageTool bundle for your respective device (the download link provided is for iPhone 4; check their website for more supported iOS devices bundles)
Once you have downloaded the PwnageTool 4.3 bundle, extract the .zip folder where you have downloaded the file and move the .bundle file to your desktop. For this scenario, the .bundle file should be the one mentioned below (in bullet):
- · iPhone3,1_4.3.2_8H7.bundle
Now, open up the PwnageTool 4.3 folder, wherever you downloaded it and Right-Click on it and choose the option that reads “Show Package Contents”. You will be shown the contents that are placed inside the program. Navigate to the following area:
- · Contents/Resources/FirmwareBundles/
You need to copy the .bundle file we moved to the desktop earlier and paste it inside this /FirmwareBundles folder.
iOS 4.3.2 Custom Firmware File:
Let us presume that you have already downloaded the iOS 4.3.2 firmware file for your respective device from the download link provided at the start of this article
Just fire up the “PwnageTool” application and choose “Expert Mode”. Choose your respective device and browse for the iOS 4.3.2 firmware file when you are requested to do so. Once done, click “Build” and then sit back and relax while the program does the rest for you.
You will need to take your device into DFU mode. To do so, you can either look at the instructions shown on the screen or read below. The steps need to be executed in their respective and timed manner for the execution to be perfect and successful. If failed, try doing so again until it becomes successful:
- Launch iTunes and connect your iPhone (turned off) with the computer.
- Hold down both Home Button and Sleep/awake Button at the same for 10 seconds.
- After 10 seconds release Sleep/Awake Button However Keep holding the Home Button until iTunes pops up a message that iTunes has detected an iPhone in Recovery Mode and iPhone Screen would go blank that’s it.
The following next steps have been briefed as they are really easy and any jailbreaker WOULD know by now what they should be doing. Anyhow:
Updating Device to iOS 4.3.2:
Now, you need to start iTunes, which should be iTunes 10.2.1. Once the program is open just click on your device which would be visible on the ‘left-hand’ side menu. Click on it, and you will be shown your device and its iOS version history at the bottom
Now, while holding the “Shift” button (on Windows) or “Alt” button (on Mac) click on the “Restore” button and iTunes should prompt you with a small popup window, which will request you to choose the location of your iOS firmware file.
Navigate to the location where you saved the Custom Firmware file patched up by PwnageTool. Once you have it located, click on it and choose “OK”
Sit back and relax while iTunes updates your iOS device to the new iOS 4.3.2 version, that too in a jailbroken mode. Once the update is successful, you can see that your device would be updated to the new iOS 4.3.2 version, and that it would also be jailbroken as Cydia would be present on your Home-screen.
